My experience from a fresh install on real hardware:

System: Gateway 2000 G6-300
CPU: Intel Pentium 2 300MHz
RAM: 128mb SDRAM (1 stick)
HDD: 5GB + 2GB (C: and D:)
Video: Mpact2 3DVD onboard AGP video (drivers were a pain to find)
Monitor: Dell 1905FP Monitor via VGA
Misc: DVD, Creative onboard sound, floppy, usb keyboard and mouse

Formatted both internal hdd on another PC because old school formatting takes forever. Installed Windows 98 SE, installed all my drivers via network share (was able to turn on SMBv1, etc), rebooted until no more reboots were needed.

Attempted 3.66 Unofficial SP3, hang at installing main. Saw 3.65 was working so installed 3.65 main, rebooted until it was done. Installed 3.66 SP3, this time it worked as stated.

Rebooting says it's missing "Enable.vxd". This didn't stop the machine from booting, just had to confirm once. Found a post from 2021 that briefly mentions it and included the file in an attachment. Copied that over and rebooted again. All is working.

I'll remove the drive and image it, then go back and install extras.

Thanks to all for their hard work on this., 2024-02-04 09:02 »

Yes, sorry, you cannot edit posts in our forums. (Welcome aboard by the way.) :wave:

Further update (I don't know if I can edit my posts?) - Whilst 3.65 installed fine, it made Win98 actively worse in a number of ways - icons going grey, file explorer not showing anything, audio stutter. Unfortunately it seems one or more patches aren't good for dosbox-X. I guess just FYI for anyone else on this path.

Ah an update! As mentioned a few pages back, it seems the 1emu VM fix for 3.66 breaks things at least for Dosbox-X which I'm using. 3.65 is currently installing fine.

I've been attempting to install this recently and having a lot of troubles. I've closely read the instructions and I don't think I'm missing anything. Trying to install the core update OR directX on their own causes INFEX to sit minimised seemingly forever. This is on a stock install of Win98SE SP2 OEM. Can anyone offer any advice?

Oh, yeah, V1c0, In addition to the AMDQCMD, USERQCMD options above (which you'll have to consider how to handle).

PC is version checking for ( and has it set up to say "This Service Pack is designed for Windows 98 Second Edition", if running on something other than 98SE.

I figure the version check is simple enough, don't ask me about the message.
